Fantastic night out for the family (esp with all the rain around). Matt and the Illusions Magic team delivered a professional and entertaining show that was captivating and mesmerizing. Even though the quality was very high, Matt gives a very personalized and interactive performance involving the audience young and old. Definitely recommend it to anyone looking for something special, funny and magical.

It is an awesome show. I got picked out of the crowd and Matt surprised me with some cool stuff that I didn't see coming. The whole shows was a lot of fun. We've seen some good magic shows around the world and this one is top class right here in Brisbane's backyard. Well done Matt and your team.

Went to the show with a group of friends and all had a great night out. Matt Hollywood is an extremely talented illusionist / magician. We were all thoroughly entertained for the duration of the show. The show and staff are very professional and go out of their way to ensure an enjoyable night. Show is suitable for all ages, don't be a skeptic, just go along and be entertained, you'll have a blast !!

Couldn't rave about this show enough. Absolutely loved it. Matt's a great showman. Funny, witty, interactive show. I've always loved magic as a kid so I got swept up in the wonderment of the show very easily. I took my kids and their friends. I ignored them all so I could enjoy the show instead of being the mum that shushed them every 5min. The staff are awesome. Service like this makes you feel good from the time you arrive until the time you leave. I thought a warm welcome was just a saying. I literally felt it being ushered and greeted by Matts team. A must see when in the GC. Well worth the money.

ever since seeing the billboards in hope island our grandson has always wanted to see the show so we took him for his 5th birthday.
although the venue has changed to surfers paradise it was still an enjoyable evening of entertainment with some classic tricks and illusions and the witty jokes.
the audience participation was a major factor in making it a fun and enjoyable show.

Yes plenty of “how did he do that”? Moments.

Suggestions

The VIP thing really didn’t work. What happens to the plebs in a downpour? Also the random seating thing was bizarre. Too many staff telling too many people where to sit. Appears you can sit anywhere BUT..

Also how about moving the photo op at the end further down the path. Allowing those who actually want to leave space to get down the stairs.

This was a fantastic night. Matt Hollywood is a legend. What an entertainer- I've never seen magic skills like his. He made us laugh a lot too. It's worth the drive out to Hope Island. Our whole family loved the show.

OMG if only I googled/researched matt Hollywood before I had gone to see him. Sorry but the setting was dingy and the performance matched. It was a cheesy performance and below average tricks. I've seen better buskers.
